ahead of this story, senator marco rubio write, "my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster and unfair to those waiting to completely, it won't bode well for reform." striking a much friendlier tone on sunday, this is what senator mccain said of the president's effort. >> believe it or not i see a glimmer of bipartisan out there. >> we have president obama out there pushing a plan. does it help? hurt? >> i think it helps. i think it's important we all work to the on this. >> this will be the first time mccain has signed on to any major obama initiative, though mccain supported fiscal legislation, he opposed don't ask/don't tell and the new start treaty. no one is sure how speaker boehner proceeds, does he violate the so-called hastert rule again? by the way, as for what the president does tomorrow, don't expect specific legislation. there was some talk that they might do that. i'm told that the congressional hispanic caucus suggested to the white
policy speech coming tomorrow in las vegas. there is the immigration 8 right there. marco rubio a part of that immigration 8. and he wrote a las vegas review op-ed saying my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster and unfair to those waiting to come legally, it won't bode well for reform. didn't use the word amnesty but that's what he's talking about. >> you know what other word he didn't use, thomas? illegal. so he intended to talk about illegal immigrants, illegal immigration. and we've seen a change in the rhetoric of how marco rubio is talking about immigration. marco has come to the table and really put his face forward. what he has done is he's the enforcer. he's the one in this gang of eight that said we can have a path to citizenship but we've got to keep beefing up the border and we have to look at the technology to track the people who are here. so he wants to make himself known as the tough cowboy in all of this. >> he's a latino republican wit
alongside of him. they also include marco rubio from florida and geoff flake, the other senate from arizonaother senate from arizona. democrats insisted any immigration reform bill had to include a path to citizenship. had to do something about these 11 million people estimated, i think it's higher than that, who had been here, came here illegally, have lived here a long time had their families have jobs, have houses have kids in school. some have kids in the military belong to local churches members of the community, had to do something being them and allow -- give them a path to staying here permanently as american citizenship. democrats always insisted on that. and the president has insisted as have democrats, that this all has to be contained in one bill. it can't be little piece meal things. republicans, for their side, still have this broken record kind of demand that we have to have tougher controls at the border when, in fact we already have tougher controls at the border, more agents there than ever before, fewer people coming across. but at any
the world. that is an honest policy debate. paul will have it over the next couple years with marco rubio and others in the senate. there will be more rand paul type candidates running. i think it's healthy for the party to have the debate. i agree with the caller more than he would think. i have never been for shutting down debate or ruling out different points of view in the party. i think a help the party does challenge its own assumptions. in this case i really think we will see out of president obama the great cost from retreating from the world. host: if he runs, marco rubio would have to give up his senate seat. in the wall street journal -- she writes that it will take a stand unity to fight president obama. can the gop in washington now develop those things? guest: i don't think we can assume there will be unity. you should not just cast a vote for the sake of unity. there are some issues where you can have unity, on procedural votes. i think people can modify their views for the sake of unity. i agree with what peggy says. when the president said you did not build that, that was
to citizenship. marco rubio, senator marco rubio has been talking about that, and we have champions on the democratic side. so i think here we have a potential new dynamic, which is rather than one party focusing on the other, they're focusing on what the electorate said. and that's the pressure and space to go forward. >> terry, what about the violence against women act? the 112th congress failed to pass a reauthorization of that. >> i think is going to continue to try to block it, and shame on him. i think there are a number of republicans, and frankly we have a stronger house now than the 113th. we have a significantly stronger senate which did pass a good bill in the 112th congress. so we are going to face hurdles. eric cantor has simply refused to pass it in the lame duck session because he couldn't get past the idea that tribal authorities would have jurisdiction over perpetrators of sexual assault. i've heard it said what does that make him -- he is coddling rapist. i'm not going to say whether he is or not. but that is certainly the impression he has given to some people. >>
trails to nowhere. >> i thought marco rubio did well i wondered if ron johnson was part of a one-two punch. he was going to really try to be -- men al migitry. >> it was striking to me. the sense of and this is bipartisan. the sense of paranoya anxiety that permeates every discussion of america's roll e in the worl and foreign policy. you would think we are consumed by consatant threats and occupiers. i'm nervous about this and anxious about this and i think it was a striking moment. it gives you a sense of what the cost of trying to moaintain thi presence and project is. >> and the difficulty of articulating a strategy. >> speaking of costs. and speaking of senator johnson. i don't mean to pick on him. he did ask an interesting question that i believe has never come up in a confirmation hearing. that is what are you going to do about the debt and deficit? >> let's listen to that. >> you utilize your position to work with the president to solve the debt and deficit issue. >> scepte i'm not here to go th the details why we didn't. there was a very, hard line position that prevente
. this bipartisan group includes marco rubio, florida u.s. senator and influential up-and-comer in the republican party and of cuban descent. he will be influential. john mccain campaigned against george w. bush in 2000, a long time advocate of immigration reform is big advocate of this. democrats almost every case on this bipartisan committee as well as in the senate are expected to follow the president's lead whatever he outlines tomorrow many they're on board with that agenda. the big question and stumbling block has been for decades is border security. how do you define it, how do you support it? this includes the use of drones, technology, all kinds of electronic surveillance and et cetera, critics say there is not enough. you need a fence and more troops on the border. how that gets legislated and sorted out we her from the president and house republicans will be influence in the outcome. house republicans want to be very much a part of passing this legislation this time. jamie: i would love to see our troops continue to work down there. that would be so helpful. carl, thanks. jon: for more
different. they decide to drop the opposition to what used to be called amnesty. now john mccain and marco rubio say we have de facto amnesty now. we want to get people legal and do in a fair way to people waiting in line. there is not a line for people who have no family in the united states. you can't get in at all legally unless you have, unless you are a chain immigrant. i think politics are actually pretty good. i think it will be hard. opposition in the house. there are details that are unclear. how do you verify a border is secure? >> bret: commission that is nebulous. >> yes, but there are republicans and democrats working together on this. senate has excellent chance. >> instant legalization is not a detai >> true. >> to use the phrase get the back of the line. there are two lines. line for immigrant legally in the united states. line for green card to become a citizen. instant legalization that charles refers to puts them at the head of one of the lines. back at the other at the back of green card line. it is cutting to head of the line. a problem. >> bret: show you a few other l
durbin and john mccain and marco rubio. they tout the changes in las vegas. it will be the first trip for the president's second term in office. the president is expected to discuss the gun control regulations. nevada is a state with a growing hispanic population and overwhelmingly supports gun ownership. >> we're learning that the grand jury voted to indict the parents of jon benet ramsey in 1999. three years after she was murdered in '96, alex hunter announced there wasn't enough evidence to charge anyone with her murder. a grand jury voted to indict both for child abuse but the prosecutor didn't prosecute because he wasn't sure he could get a conviction. her parents were eventually exonerated in 2008. >>> investigators are working to identify the bodies of more than 230 people who died in a nightclub fire in brazil. more than 100 others were injured. it happened early sunday morning in a nightclub in santa maria. they believe the fast moving fire started when a pyrotechnics hit the ceiling. the president there declared a three-day mourning period for the victims. many of the victim
and what could be a comprehensive bill. i would hope that marco rubio and menendez and other members of the senate work together to gather something that is strong and comprehensive. a piece meal approach will not work. >> is this amnesty? >> you will see changes in the republican party on this issue. the republicans recognized politically that they have to have more inclusive policies. they have to reach out to people and morally. it's the right thing to do. welcome people to the country. it makes us stronger and enriches us. i think you will see a different tone to the debate and think there will be elements in both parties that oppose it. they worry that wages will be kept down if you let people into america. whatever you call it, amnesty. there is going to be the elements that will be marginalized and be fewer this debate than last time. >> i don't think there is any doubt they have a chance of passing comprehensive immigration and president bush tried unsuccessfully even though you have and ted kennedy. plunging temperatures, ice and snow gripping much of the country right now.
, he will inherit a whole lot of problems. senator marco rubio, republican of florida, had a line about foreign policy saying the key is making sure you're not trying to do more than we can, while also ensuring we are not doing less than we should. rubio rattled off the hot spots in the mideast and kerry offered the this response. >> there's a monumental transformation taking place. this this biggest upheaval in that part of the world since the ottoman empire. since it came apart. it is a highly sectarian, divided, tribal part of the world. and i'm not sure that every policy has always been sensible on that. >> kerry said we'll do what we must to keep iran from getting nuclear weapons. shep? >> a really ugly problem is syria. what about that? >> senator kerry said there was a moment when the syrian regime was reaching out to the west, but the moment is gone. and then there was this exchange. >> every day that goes by in syria, it gets worse. every day that goes by it gets worse. so, there is a -- seems to me, a very strong elm tuesday -- empetus to realize our present policy is not work
part of it. but again, i like many of the principles that marco rubio has been laying out. i think he's a member of this group, and i look forward to seeing what they produce. >> reporter: and that's as good as a place as any to start. melanie alnwick, fox 5 news. >>> a secret service dog fell to its death saturday night. the k-9 officer was doing a sweep of a parking area in new orleans. the agency began its training program in 1975 to detect explosives. each dog and handler completes 20 weeks of training before beginning work. >>> holocaust survivors are gathering in poland today to commemorate 68 years since the soviet liberation of the death camps. politicians and dignitaries joined survivors to pay their respects. groups laying down wreaths and flowers. many of the survivors attending were either born in the camp or sent there as children. between one and 1.5 million people died at the camps during world war ii. >>> coming up tonight, a new racy tourist ad showcasing d.c. and turning some heads. but is it a little too much? we're going to take a look. day. now you can do it with

and republicans john mccain and marco rubio. the new semester begins this morning at montgomery college. some students may not suddenly be able to afford tuition. it's because of the dream act there. undocumented immigrants who are still in high school but want to take courses at the community college have to pay almost triple the rate of their peers. that's because the dream act requires students to graduate from a maryland high school to be eligible for instate teu tigs. they're working to fix the loophole. >>> billions of dollars of aid for hurricane sandy victims. the long awaited disaster aid package. the house approved the package last week. this week marks three months since the superstorm slammed into the east coast. the bill is expected to pass. >>> hillary clinton is beginning her final week as secretary of state. we've learned that friday will be her final day as head of the state department. tomorrow clinton will take part in what's being called a global town-ter view at the museum. it's a meeting and television interview. on friday, she'll attend -- last night on 60 minutes, clin
and get heavy in the summer. >> senator marco rubio getting ready to join the bipartisan group working immigration reform. do you think a high profile latino like rubio can push it past the finish line? >> i think he can help, particularly with many republicans who have been unwilling to move on this issue. so, to the extent that his voice can lend support and move the ball forward, i think that is only be a good thing. >> before i let you get out of here, we should note you are the president of the freshman class of house democrats. first of all, do you run for that? or is that one of those jobs that no one kind of wants and they say, seems like a nice guy, give it to him. >> it's me and a few people, we are share responsibilities. >> how is it going so far? >> going well, it's a great group of democrats, we have 49 democratic freshman folk have come to washington to get things done and we are working on those things now. >> and how is your twin brother? how is the mayor? >> my brother is doing well. you know, happy to be mayor of san antonio, just announced his re-election campaign,
here get citizenship. host: where is that coming from? guest: marco rubio is an important player from florida. he is a cuban-american and he has put forth a plan that would provide citizenship under strict circumstances for people who came to the country illegally. that is pretty big and house republicans have their own plan, some members are putting forward similar plans. obama has his own plan that we will hear about so and then that will look lot like what democrats, with a few more years ago and it is more liberal and is less likely that democrats will embrace that. the fact that both sides are talking about it suggests there is a possibility they could come together and do something within this next congress -- in this next congress behind immigration. republicans did not very do well in this election with the hispanic. they feel like they cannot completely abandon hispanics. they need to show they have some empathy for folks who are here illegally. host: when you look at the line of the senate, you of marco rubio and you have jeff lake, republican from arizona, and you have more
of conservatives. marco rubio of florida, john mccain and lindsay graham were all out there saying the time has come to deal with this in a comprehensive way. >> we heard this before. i have video of chuck schumer saying this will be the last amnesty. we will do it again. look at the debates in 2006. this is the only time. marco rubio said he was not going to support a path to citizenship. they said they were not going to support the program. we have a labor market and we have job displacement and see a lot of americans who were struggling. how is this by giving amnesty and setting off a tidal wave and going to help the average american get a job and better wages and improved working conditions. how will it help the fiscal situation? the bill is a skeletal draft. these guys go into it holding arm and arm like they are going in the tunnel of love. it's like they have been in a lion's den. when you get down to the details, what you see is all the enforcement provisions and things we have on the books anyway. if the president would enforce the law, it's a big bill with a prospect of enforcement wh
a dozen years ago, but some newborn faces like marco rubio who of course is an up and coming conservative who has made this issue one of his own, because of the fact that he too is concerned about the way the republican party is perceived in the latino community. the important thing to keep in mind is this is just the beginning. there are some very divisive issues within the immigration concept that have not yet been worked out. for example, you mentioned at the beginning that this whole idea makes a path to citizenship contingent on border security. they've not worked out yet what the so-called metrics are for how they know the border is secure. that is very, very important. and the devil is, to use a cliche, in the details there. also goes for how they detyfine path to citizenship. >> jessica, you're getting some new information about the white house, the president is planning to propose, maybe as early as tomorrow, when he's in las vegas. >> the difference between the president's plan and what the senate has proposed is the path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are here
marco rubio from florida come up with a pretty comprehensive immigration reform package or ideas. that could be a place where the president and certainly senator rubio but other members of the republican party could take an issue that's hard and it's historically been hard to reach compromise on and maybe find the common ground, find the soluti solution. so that might be something we might want to look out for over the next few weeks in addition to all the talk about the economy and that and deficits. >> brown: what's your answer to what others have commented on here as to the kind of signal the president was sending as to what kind of leader he wants to be? you know, with his vision now or reaching across the aisle? >> i thought it was more of an articulation of his vision not as much signaling reaching across the aisle. that was the message he ran on in this first race and aate lot of the message of his first inaugural. less so in this particular speech. but as ramesh pointed out, he won the election. it's his opportunity to set forth that. we're in a divided time right now. so
.c. but on the other hand, you're seeing the marco rubios of the world focus on immigration reform, from his perch on capitol hill. you're seeing paul ryan work on the republicans' budget. so there is that interesting outsider versus insider dynamic going on. >> fascinating. we always say governors are pragmatic, and that seems to be what the divide is right now. i want to bring up something which is fascinating in battleground states. excuse me. republicans in these states, virginia, michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, they control the state legislature, they're trying to move legislation that would make it so it's not winner take all in the electoral college. that it's proportional, so that if you have -- you win via the congressional district, which a lot of republicans are saying, well, it means local control, but take virginia, northern virginia would get the same vote as out near tennessee, which has much less population. what is the purpose behind this? >> look, it's all about giving the republicans a significant advantage in these battleground states that they've lost in the past two presidentia
different direction talking to folks on capitol hill. marco rubio talking about immigration reform. i think they want to get a deal on that, the republicans do. it will be interesting. i think the budget wars will be telling because this is still a huge fight over the role of government, over how much government safety net should be kept versus not. this is the battle that the president wants to have, and whether it's paul ryan or other potential candidates in 2016, you know, that's where a lot is going to be decided many terms of this coalition politics that they want to play in a presidential race. >> paul ryan's moves in williamsburg even before these winter meetings telling the caucus we have to make this deal on the debt ceiling and fight -- live to fight another day, he really is looking more and more like a 2016 possibility because he is trying to recast the posture of the party. >> i don't know where he gets tough sacrifices. what he asked before, and now he wants to do a budget of ten years that will balance the budget. you know, to do that would require even more drastic cuts that
important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on board. host: we are awaiting the luncheon, which will be wrapping up shortly, and we will hear from the speaker of the house, as well as the president, and at truck schumer, lamar alexander comedy cochairs of the joint congressional committee -- and chuck schumer, lamar alexander, the cochairs of the joint congressional committee on the inauguration. there was a sense of bipartisanship, at least to
, not necessarily become citizens, but say here legally. host: where is that coming from? caller: marco rubio has put forward a plan that has put on the table but that decision. that is pretty big, and house republicans have their own plans. now, president obama has his own plan that we will hear about sin and that will look like a lot like the plan that democrats cannot with a few years ago, and it is less likely that democrats will embrace that. side is that eatch talking about it suggests to me that they can come together in the next congress, and one of the big reasons is the political ones. republicans did not do very well in this election and they felt like if they were able to do better in this group they would have a better chance of winning. they feel like that they cannot completely abandon hispanics. a huge issue. host: when you look at the lineup of the senate, you have marked rubio putting up legislation, and then jeff flake from arizona, and more democrats as well. guest: the politics are changing fundamentally and quickly. republicans work really shaken up by the demographics of th
immigrants who are here? there's talk even among marco rubio how to get them legalization. they're not leaving anytime soon. no one expects that probably. so i think there's going to be in the principles a way to talk about a path to legalization number one and possibly citizenship. it's still a controversial issue, other issues such as verifying workers for businesses, those are the principles that are going to be talked about by the bipartisan group. there's a lot of hope that is going to be the kickoff to some legislative bill that could get support in the senate and possibly give some republicans in the house who might be willing to vote for it but looking for the senate to lead on this. i think this is a big week. >> lauren one more last thing to you. your latest article as well, maybe a name in there a lot of americans might not be that familiar with but he has certainly been playing a role in our politics because of how much money he's able to throw around. he's already talking about throwing some more money around in 2014. >> you're talking about foster freese who kept r
, marco rubio said that women are already in combat and we should put the best soldiers forward regardless of their gender. just that juxtaposition of women getting infections in the ditch, and here we go the republican party. >> i take all of my advice from newt gingrich. >> and all of the bodily functions. >> and marital, too. >> yes. >> look, i'm thrilled that servicewomen will have equal career opportunities to advance in the armed force, because the military is just that it is another employer, and we should never ever condone employment discrimination in america by any way, but by the same tone my excitement is tempered by the b abhorrent violence against women in the military. and we are talking about a high chance of being assaulted by one of your own than being killed by the enemy. >> that is where we are going to go after the break, this question of how there is a different combat for military women, and the fight against sexual assault when we return. >>> the new expansion of combat roles was not the only message to come out of washington about women in the military this week.
illegal immigrants. backed by president obama and john mccain, marco rubio and charles shumer. >>> set to vote today on a $50 billion relief bill for super storm sandy. help the hardest hit areas. some law makers argue legislation would add to the nation's growing debt unless spending cuts are made elsewhere. president obama promised to sign the bill if it makes it to his desk. >> president obama and hillary clinton held a joint interview. he wanted to publically thank his one time rival for four great years of service. >> i'm going to miss her. wish she was sticking around. but she has logged in so many miles i can't begrudge her. i want the country to appreciate what an extraordinary role she's played during the course of my administration. >> this has been an extraordinary opportunity to work with him as a parking lot in her and friend to do our very best on behalf of this country we both love. and it's something i'm going to miss a great deal. >> clinton steps down as secretary of state on friday. president obama nominated john kerry as a replacement. >> well, we continue our mento
of the year you could see a deal coming together. you have to watch marco rubio. if he comes out to an eventual pathway to citizenship, and you're going to go through a whole bunch of obstacles, payments, but if he ultimately supports is, you can get a deal. >> it's in his initial plan. >> what about five years ago though? george w. bush the president of the united states supported immigration reform and he got absolutely rolled by republicans in the house and the senate. marco rubio doesn't have the power to make a republican from iowa support this. >> he might. >> no, he doesn't. >> he's one of the few republicans who's conservative enough he can get people to change their habits. if you don't, the numbers will kill them. you can't leave the fastest growing group in america in perpetuity. texas politics are in the different today. four years, eight years, they're radically different. if you look at the growth of hispanic in texas, you have the five largest cities. they're all moving to the middle largely because you have growing minority populations. the cou
an agreement on immigration reform. republicans john mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio and jeff flake are joining the democrats chuck schumer and bennett to introduce a set of principles they want to guide immigration legislation as it moves through congress. here's what the four basics of this proposal look like. first create a tough but fair path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already here. contingent on meeting border security metrics. changes the system in a way that helps our economy. set up a verification program and overhaul the system for letting future workers into the united states. the goal is to have legislation drafted by the end of march. >>> the president's going to travel to vegas tomorrow and that is where he will speak publicly on his plans to move immigration reform and make that an immediate priority. of course, he's also moving on gun violence at the same time. so he's going to have to work at those paths simultaneously. we can attribute the new republican willingness to go along with republican reform to the republicans losing seven out of ten hispanic vot
debate. paul will have it over the next couple years with marco rubio and others in the senate. there will be more rand paul type candidates running. i think it's healthy for the party to have the debate. i agree with the caller more than he would think. i have never been for shutting down debate or ruling out different points of view in the party. i think a help the party does challenge its own assumptions. in this case i really think we will see out of president obama the great cost from retreating from the world. host: if he runs, marco rubio would have to give up his senate seat. in the wall street journal -- she writes that it will take a stand of unity to fight president obama. can the gop in washington now develop those things? guest: i don't think we can assume there will be unity. you should not just cast a vote for the sake of unity. there are some issues where you can have unity, on procedural votes. i think people can modify their views for the sake of unity. i agree with what peggy says. when the president said you did not build that, that was correctly jumped on.
. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from louisiana, he said that president obama had done little to enforce immigration laws. i think you will find for th
